“I just read my Wikipedia for the very first time and man do they have a lot of things wrong,” Motley Crue bassist tweeted Saturday evening. “But I guess if it’s on the Internet, it must be true.” I’ll say I’m pretty excited for the next step [week’s] ad. “
Earlier today, Sixx shared a gym selfie on Instagram and encouraged fans to guess what the ad would be. While it’s not clear if anyone guessed the correct answer, one fan definitely made the wrong guess: “That Motley fired Vince [Neil] and [Sixx: A.M. singer] @jamesmichaelofficial will take a tour of the stadium!

Sixx has been involved in various projects lately. Last month he made his debut with LA Rats, his new supergroup with Rob Zombie, John 5 and drummer Tommy Clufetos (Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne). The quartet released a cover of Geoff Mack’s 1959 country standard “I’ve Been Everywhere,” which will appear in the upcoming Netflix movie. The ice road with Liam Neeson.
“This song that’s so rock’n’roll, that’s so country, that’s so much it – it’s the traveling circus, from town to town, riff to riff, fat cheeseburger, rinse and repeat,” said Sixx said in a press release upon the release of “I’ve Been Everywhere”. “It’s reality-based poetry, and it’s something each of us has experienced. “
In addition, Sixx tweeted at the end of May that he was “working on @SixxAM with James and @DjASHBA”. He also has revealed Friday he was working on a new book and accompanying illustrations as well as a new venture. So there is a wide range of possibilities for next week’s announcement.
Sixx will be everywhere – or at least all over the United States – on the Motley Crue Stadium Tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts next summer. The reunion trek was originally scheduled for summer 2020, then was postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and was finally postponed to 2022.
